A flexible endoscope is used to inspect the pleural cavity, which is the area between the lungs and the chest wall, during a pleuroscopy, also referred to as a medical thoracoscopy, which is a minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic treatment.
The pleura (the lining of the lungs) and other tissues within the pleural space are visible thanks to the endoscope, which is placed through a small incision in the chest wall.
Pleural effusions (a buildup of fluid in the pleural space), infections, tumors, and other disorders that affect the lungs and pleura can all be diagnosed via pleuroscopy.
In order to address these disorders, it can also be utilized for biopsies and other procedures. Generally speaking, pleuroscopy is regarded as a risk-free, efficient treatment with few consequences
The Global Pleuroscope Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
A novel pleuroscope for use with local anesthesia has been created by Olympus Corporation.
The area close to the pleuroscope’s insertion site can be seen thanks to the new flex-rigid pleuroscope, which allows observations with a maximum angle of curvature of 180°.
Additionally, it increased the channel’s inner diameter and image quality. A review of patients who had their condition evaluated using a novel flex-rigid pleuroscope while being sedated
The novel flex-rigid pleuroscope is a reliable and secure tool for pleural effusion diagnosis. The increased bending angle will probably reduce the blind area. The novel pleuroscopy fiberscope could increase the rate of accurate diagnoses.
Undiagnosed pleural effusions have been treated successfully and safely with the new pleuroscope. The bending angle, image quality, and channel inner diameter of the new pleuroscope have all been enhanced. The increased bending angle will probably reduce the blind area.
With the new pleuroscope, there is a strong likelihood that the diagnostic rate will increase even further. The improved pleuroscope’s image quality with NBI was also clearer than with white light imaging, making it simple to spot abnormal vascularity.
